Phil [Adopted 8/11/2012] came into the rescue as a stray. He loves to romp and play in the yard. He is completely housetrained and “cat-tested”. Since coming to his foster home, he has made great strides in learning house rules and has become a true cuddle bug. He greets new people warily. You have to earn his trust. He does best when you let him warm up to you and take things at his own pace. He would do well in a home with large dogs, as he seems to get along well with all dogs, but intimidates the smaller ones. He will need obedience training with positive reinforcement to help with what he has learned. So far, he comes readily when called, knows stay, sit, and understands “no!”. He still needs a lot of reinforcement on jumping. If you have the patience, you will be rewarded with a very sweet and loving companion.
